2.3

往高處走,叢林植物逐漸稀少。
往外一看時,山下只得一片白。
可以想像繼續向上爬,景色也不會有任何改變。
只有五米內的東西真正能見,
不斷往後消退的路,緊接著下一段一模一樣的路。

Bushes become sparse when I go further up.
Looking down, my vision is blocked by a white mist.
The scenery will remain the same even if I climb higher.
Only things within 5 metres are visible to my eyes,
The rest of the path goes on fading away, what wait ahead are more identical roads.


他有種說故事的本領,用影像帶你跟隨他的步調,以緩慢的節奏觀看生活中的不經意。鄧浩倫,香港攝影師,先後發表過攝影集《Maybe a sentence or something》(2013)、《Stairs》(2014)、《聽靜》(2016)。喜在不尋常的視角看待尋常景物,相比起充滿城市緊張感、呈現香港繁喧印象的攝影,他的作品是個異數。題材單一平淡,風格安靜內斂,但他認為「真正單調的,是我們看待生命的態度」。

He is a talented narrator; in an unhurried pace, you are led by visual images to watch the trivial matters of life.  Published photobooks by the Hong Kong photography Ho Lun Tang include Maybe a sentence or something in 2013, Stairs in 2014 and Listen quietly in 2016. While most of the photography works tend to depict Hong Kong as a bustling and tense city, Tang is definitely a peculiar photographer who gazes at the usual objects from an unusual angle. He uses a modest attitude to document monotonous subjects in his photography, for he believes ‘what is truly monotonous is our approach to life.’
